# What are the intercepts of -6y+8x=1?

Mar 9, 2018

x-intercept $= \left(\frac{1}{8}\right)$

y-intercept $= - \left(\frac{1}{6}\right)$

#### Explanation:

$- 6 y + 8 x = 1$

When y = 0,

$8 x = 1$ or x-intercept $= \left(\frac{1}{8}\right)$

When x = 0,

$- 6 y = 1$ or y-intercept $= - \left(\frac{1}{6}\right)$

This can be verified from the graph below
